Amazon has just dropped a brand-new trailer for the upcoming Fallout TV show, which will air exclusively on Amazon Prime Video – in full – from April 11. In the new feature-length trailer, we get an in-depth look at the world that has been built for the first big-budget, live-action adaptation of the Fallout universe.

As the trailer was released, Todd Howard revealed how it’s a ‘blessing to see’ how the television show has been produced, and confirmed that it’s a canonical addition to the expansive, twenty-five-year-old post-apocalyptic franchise. It’s an original story because there are intentions to build on the series, but it’s unapologetically, irrefutably Fallout.

Brand New Fallout TV Show Trailer is Stunning

Here’s the new trailer for the Fallout TV show, which will be released globally on April 11:

In the three-minute-long video, we get an in-depth look at the beautiful yet harrowing world created by the showrunners to celebrate the first major live-action adaptation of Fallout. We’re given a longer introduction to Ella Purnell and Walton Goggins’ characters. The latter has been revealed as a survivor of The Great War who turned into a Ghoul following extensive exposure to radiation over a period lasting 200 years.

Purnell’s character is seen being put through the wringer, first emerging into a world torn apart by 200 years of the apocalypse and being set upon by the dangers of said world. In one scene, she clashes with a Mr Handy robot that wants to harvest her organs. She quickly goes from being a clean-cut, innocent Vault Dweller to a battle-hardened badass of the wastes, but I imagine that transition will unfold much slower than it does in the trailer.

We’re also given a look at the Brotherhood of Steel from an all-new angle. It seems that there are plenty of origin stories outlined in the show, which should make for a fantastic foundation ahead of what could be an unforgettable series.

Fallout airs in full on Amazon Prime Video on April 11.
